    We have had final parenting orders in place since 2011. There were some issues with the orders and the child is starting school so we ended up back in family court and an interim order has been made changing the time the child spends with the father to allow him to go to school. The matter is now going to trial and is pending further hearing until March next year.

    The final family court orders have a specific order that states that the ordinary 'spends time with' order be suspended to allow the child to spend father's day with the father. The mother is now refusing to let the child come for father's day and says that the original orders are not valid anymore and the interim order is the only order she has to follow.

    My question is, are the original orders still current if they have not been discharged or amended?

    Unless there is an interim order holding that all prior orders are suspended, then the final orders ordinarily remain standing concurrently with the interim orders, but this probably requires a legal professional to read and interpret the orders for you. Legal Aid offer free consultations for family law matters - it might be worthwhile ringing them to book an appointment.
